I was recently invited to share insight on “abundance” with Enchanted Living – a beautiful high-end magazine for those of us bold enough to call ourselves “Witches”!
I decided I’d share the article with you, in hopes you will be able to track down this magazine and subscribe :o)
Abundance is defined as “a very large amount of something.” As Witches, we know that “abundance” for us is often very different than it is for “others.”
Before I recognized the importance of (and claimed) my Personal Power, there was a time when “abundance” meant designer clothes, expensive jewelry, and dining in fancy New York City restaurants.
Well, that was 40 years ago.
At this point in my life, my definition of “abundance” has changed dramatically. Gone are the designer clothes and fancy dinners – in fact, I’d rather eat at home – wearing my expensive jewelry (‘cuz that hasn’t gone away!) I now perceive good health, loving family and friends, my time, and the financial freedom to do what I want, when I want – as “abundance.”
Here’s the thing, whatever stage you are in your life, your definition of abundance is valid. In fact, your version of “abundance” today may just lead to a more definitive version of “abundance” tomorrow, simply based on your previous experiences.
I’ll share my 4 Keys to Abundant Living based on my experiences over the last 40 years. I’ll also offer a sweet little spell that packs a wallop of Magick!
- Stop Comparing: Comparing yourself to those who make you jealous places your attention/energy on lack and want. Remember, whatever you focus on, grows. Feelings of scarcity cannot be your focus.
- Indulge in Your “Abundance Trigger”: Abundance Triggers are the simple things in life that support your feelings of abundance. For whatever reason, my upbringing allowed me to equate facial tissue, paper towels, and lemons with abundance. I always make sure I have these three things in my home. What makes you feel abundant? A well-stocked pantry? A stash of cash? A candy-jar? Identify what your abundance trigger is, and always have it available to you.
- Charity: There is no better way to feel abundant than freely giving to those less fortunate than you. Whether you adopt an animal, give your doggy bag to a homeless person or donate your time at a food kitchen, your heart must be in your “charity.”
- Gratitude: When we are truly grateful for what we already have, The Universe conspires to provide more of that which supports that feeling. Each day, upon awakening, name ten things you are grateful for before getting out of bed. It can be large or small, and you can even repeat yourself, as long as you are sincere. For example, I usually include my kids, pets, house, and store in my gratitude list, but my plants, crystals, rainy days, and expensive sheets also make my list.
In addition to using the four keys, create your Abundance Magnet Mojo Bag to be a natural magnet for abundance.
You’ll need a small green bag, (3) bay leaves, lodestone, citrine, green aventurine, and something representing your primary Abundance Trigger. For example, I use lemon seeds as an abundance trigger since I associate lemons with abundance. On a Thursday (Jupiter’s day of expansion), combine your ingredients into your bag as the sun rises. Feel, sense, and imagine all the aspects of an abundant life you can, then blow into your bag. Always carry your Abundance Mojo with you, and never tell anyone the contents.
In all you do, remember that you are already abundant. Focus on that!
You are loved!
